Is the total cost of $5.5 million for the Westview Cemetery Building accurate?

Full Question: Based on the Appropriations Committee report, after all debt for this project is paid off the total cost of the Westview Cemetery Building would be $5.5 million once you account for the additional $1.5 million of debt service over the life of the debt. Is that accurate?

Answer: The total cost of the project including the study and design (actual cost) and projected construction ($3.29 million using a 4% interest rate and level payment over 20 years, plus the $770,000 in cash capital) would be approximately $5.9 million.
